Shoe Addict + Thrifty Girl=Shoe Renovation
I have lots of flats, but they've been really boring me lately. I needed something with more pizazz.
Red Felt Flower Pizazz to be exact!
Across the blogosphere I've seen lots of cute ways to enhance shoes so I decided to do something to a pair that had been abandoned in the back of my closet.
Here's a haphazard how-to of how I haphazardly did it:) Make sense?
Mission: Bloom the Shoes
Target: Black and White Tweed flats (Isaac Mizrahi for Target)
Weapon: Felt and my conquer-the-world-glue-gun.
-Taking a red piece of felt, I free handed across the widest part, a wavy line like such about 1 inch from the bottom:
-the first strip had a longer tail as it will be the start which created the bud.
-the next strip I cut was straight as the wavy bottom was left. So I went up from the bottom another inch and make a straight cut. Then the next strip was a wavy one and so on.
-once I had my strips cut I rolled them and glued every so often to secure them. I Kept adding strips to the roll and arranged it to look how I liked. Once the flower was large enough I used my scissors to trim and shape as necessary. I then used my glue gun and created an x to keep the flower in tact.
-Then I hot glued to my desired place on the shoe and VIOLA!
So much cuter! MISSION COMPLETE.
